Sal's the chef in the family (literally), so we've been enjoying some amazing creations using our fresh produce since the share started a few weeks ago. And when we start to get a little behind on using things up and another Tuesday is looming, there's always stir fry to save the day.
Thursday's bento was a particularly delicious salad -- it included beets, spring onion, and green and red leaf lettuce from this week's share and a radish from last week's:
- green & red leaf lettuces lining the box
- herb roasted chicken breast
- julienned carrots
- beets roasted with spring onion and a bit of olive oil and sea salt
- radish "flower"
- sunflower seeds
- homemade sweet vinaigrette
Sal always says the secret of good cooking is good ingredients...we certainly have that from Wealth Underground, don't we?
*(Bento, if you don't know, is a Japanese-inspired style of packed meals. Not only is it nutritious, it's great fun, too! And addictive...I highly recommend it.) And if there's anyone out there who does bento, I'd love to hear from you!
